What makes people shout when they are angry?

I absolutely LOVE this answer!

And I  love Quora!

Answer by Shikhar Agarwal:

A saint was walking along the river Ganges when he noticed some family members shouting at each other. He smiled and asked his disciples, “Why do people shout when angry?”
The disciples thought for some time. Some said “because they lose their temper and calm”, others said “that they want to stress upon their views” and so on. The saint was obviously not satisfied. Finally, he explained them the reason, “When two people are in love, they talk softly with each other. What happens when the love increases much more? They start whispering. And then comes a point, when they only have to look into each other’s eyes to convey their thoughts. Now can you guess the answer?”
The disciples were still confused. So he continued, “when two people become angry, the distance between their hearts increases. To cover this distance, they need to shout so that they can hear each other. The more the anger, the greater the distance and hence more the shouting.”

This is what happens. So when you become angry, don’t let your heart create distance from the other person, because some day it might happen that the distance increases so much that it would be impossible to bridge it.

Where did all the years go?!

This is the age my siblings and I referred to as ‘old’ when we were little girls. In some ways, I don’t feel old and in some other ways, I am an old sage, maybe even a wise sage… I miss being young :)

I love birthdays. I believe people should be celebrated. If you don’t celebrate a person the whole year, at least do it once; on their birthday.

Sleep Through The Storm

Sam Cooke looked up from under the tractor he was fixing to see a middle-aged, well-build man standing there quietly waiting for him. To Sam’s inquiry the man gave his name as Bill Jeffers – his business, handyman.

He was inquiring about the “Handy Man Wanted” sign on Sam’s gate. Sam needed a helper, but he wanted to be sure he got a good one, so he asked the stranger, “What can you do?”
The reply, “I can sleep through a storm,” didn’t make sense and sounded as though the man might be a little on the “cracked” side.

Repeated questions brought on the same answer, calm and direct, “I can sleep through a storm.” Impatiently Sam Cooke expressed his misgivings about hiring Jeffers by telling him that there was another man applying for the job, and to come back next Saturday to see if it was still open.

Saturday morning Jeffers was on hand early, inquiring about the job which he knew wasn’t filled because the sign was still up on the gate. The interview was the same as before; with “I can sleep through a storm” Jeffers’ only answer. By this time, Sam was desperate for a helper, so he hired the man on a trial basis.

In the weeks that followed, Sam was to find that Bill Jeffers was the best worker he had ever seen. Whatever needed doing got done, and well, and both men were pleased with the arrangement.

The farmer was willing to forget that his hired man talked a little “peculiar” when asked what he could do.

Then one night came the storm. Lightning had been flickering on the horizon when they went to bed, but when Sam awoke about midnight; the storm was almost on them. He quickly pulled on his clothes and went to the hired mans room to wake him up so that together they could put the farm in shape for the storm, see that the doors were closed, the tractor covered, the livestock inside, and a number of other things.

Pound as he might on Bill’s door, there was no response, and Sam angrily went rushing out to put the place in shape, muttering about his stupidity in hiring a man you couldn’t waken when you needed him most, resolving to fire him in the morning.

When Sam got to the barn, all the doors were already closed, the tractor was indoors, the livestock were all bedded down; everything was all set. As he slowly undressed after his unnecessary trip around the farm in the rain, Sam Cooke at last knew what his hired man had meant by “I can sleep through a storm.”

Jeffers did his works so well, so thoroughly that he did not need to worry in the time of storm. He knew that everything was right.

If we live our lives the same way, the storm times will never bother us, because we will be ready for them.

Why Parents Have Grey Hair!

The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers.

He dialled the employee’s home phone number and was greeted with a child’s whispered, “Hello?”

Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster the boss asked, “Is your Daddy home?”
“Yes”, whispered the small voice.

“May I talk with him?” the man asked.
To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, “No.”

Hidden Treasures

Pearl Ijeoma Ezeokeke:

I love him, I love his mind and I love how he puts it down on paper.

From my Red. Enjoy.


“Everything must be fulfilled.”

Jesus knew that He was going to suffer excruciating pain for us at the cross, yet He faced it with courage. We always have one thing or the other that we need courage for; to face each day. We can count on Him to grant us the courage we need.

~Adams Allison~

The Bible, like a goldmine, is filled with precious truths. Sometimes Scripture is very clear about what it says, but sometimes we need to drill deep and do some excavation work ourselves (by the help of His Spirit of course). However, when you dig, what you find becomes much more precious. (For where your treasure is there your heart will be also).

Today, I started my morning drawing strength from this verse and I want to share it with you.

How Does Advertising Work?

I have often wondered about this; how does advertising work? How does the advert of a company’s good/product make me, Ijeoma, buy that good/product?

And believe me, I have seen plenty marvellous adverts especially on Youtube; Van Damme’s epic splitThe T-Mobile Welcome Back ad… If I continue, space no go dey.

How many goods have I bought because I saw the advert and I was impressed, and then bought it? How about you, have you had any situation like this? Has advertising worked for you? Please tell me oh ‘cos I really want to know.

Etisalat's Nigerian Idol

Etisalat’s Nigerian Idol

The one that is even more perplexing for me is when Etisalat sponsors Nigerian Idol or MTN’s Project Fame etc.

I understand that they can make money from it from just the text messages you send to vote for contestants but I’m more concerned about if the fact that I’m so happy MTN is sponsoring Project Fame will make me go out and get an MTN line knowing how crappy their service can be.

Will I open another account with GTBank because they are sponsoring a show I like, Gidi Up?


By the way, I tried to open a current account with them; I submitted all the forms they required and what not. It’s been over 2 months and shikom, I haven’t heard from them.

I have ka ha bad.


So, let me know, I’m very interested in how this stuff works.
